3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer with a small white head.
Peppery, spicy hop aromas, some malts.
Falvour is mostly thick sweet malts , backed by peppery hoppiness, curious long lasting mild bitter ness.
Nice on the palate, quite smooth, almost silky.
Overall a nice Golden ale...i dont think this can be considered an "ESB".

Bottle. Hazy, light golden color with a white head. Light citrus hop aroma, backed by some light malt. Thin to medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is mild malt with lemon citrus hop, and noble hop. Finish is dry and decently bitter. Leaves a spice tingle in the mouth.

Received 12-oz bottle from Liquid Solutions.biz in Portland, Oregon. Pours a semi-clear golden yellow brew with an average sized white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of golden grain malts, a touch of citrus zest, some light fruit and a touch of lemon. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, a touch of lemon zest and some grassy hops. Finish has a mild white bread dough aftertaste with some remaining citrus zest that slowly disappears.

12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Poured yellow. Smells a bit like a macrobrew; PBR? Tastes better, though. Nice balance. Good summer beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured pale, yellow with a white head. Herbs and grains on the nose. Crisp and refreshing palate-very thirst quenching. Flavors of lemon grass and other citrus note that blend with the hops nicely. Pretty mild beer, not as bad as I thought it would be.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 Pours cloudy amber with a modest white head. Aroma is floral, herbal.
Taste is slightly bitter grapefruit with a rich malt side as well. The bitterness is somewhat astringent and lingers a long time. Excellent ESB, I must have more!
